The film consists of nine mini - pieces created by the best Japanese (and Chinese - Mao LAMDAN,author of "The Cloud ") animators of his time. Nine stories - despite the fact that the first and the last one is a fragment, like a vicious circle, the beginning of the end. Stories about robots, the people living close to the robots, and some inside the robot). Deliberately or not (most certainly vsyostill loosely) the authors once again illustrated the calculations Lem wise: we are " not looking for anyone, except the people. We do not need other worlds. We need a mirror. " What better and more clearly reflect the humanity than by their mechanical people? Robots - a hope, this is a threat, the eternal tomorrow, another "we". The man believes in robots. Afraid of them.Grants of those traits, which he would like to have - and those fears in myself to see.
